Dr. Eleonora Bedin 2017-2021
Dr. Bedin comes from Vicenza, Italy. She has obtained both her BA and Master’s degree in Classics at the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. She arrived in Israel three years ago for doing her PhD at the Department of Maritime Civilizations under the supervision of Dr. Gil Gambash. Interested in Greek Epigraphy and Mediterranean history, her research focuses on Mediterranean-based syncretism and its continuity over time. Through the analysis of literary and epigraphic sources coming from the entire basin, she is currently working on the recurrence of religious patterns and their dependence on the human experience of the sea itself.
